If they were a swim team and not a college basketball
team, the Nazareth College Golden Flyers would have had a
difficult time transitioning from the shallow end to the deep
end of the pool in 2006-07.
As games transitioned from one half to another, the Golden
Flyers had difficulty holding their breath and their season
became more renowned for coughing up second-half leads
than for winning basketball games.
The end result was that Nazareth struggled to keep its
collective head above the break-even mark as it finished
11-14 overall and 6-8 in the tough Empire 8 Conference.
As the calendar turns to 2007-08, the Golden Flyers hope
to able to swim with the E8ís bigger fish as they come
equipped with a roster that is talented, experienced and. . .
yes. . . deep.
